A Big Night to Celebrate Best Friends at the Bar and Women Lawyers

Over 100 people gathered at the National Museum for Women in the Arts in Washington, DC last night to celebrate women lawyers and the release of my new book, Best Friends at the Bar:  Top-Down Leadership for Women Lawyers (Wolters Kluwer/Aspen 2015).  A good time was had by all in the beautiful setting made possible by sponsors including Womble Carlyle (Premier Event Sponsor); DLA (Sustaining Project Sponsor); Hogan Lovells; Faegre Baker Daniels; Reed Smith; Kirkland and Ellis; The Potomac Law Group; and NewLAWu.s.

By all accounts, the guests enjoyed my remarks and those by Cathy Hinger, partner at Womble Carlyle, and Libby Baney of Faegre Baker Daniels.  The themes were effective leadership, inclusiveness and the importance of changing law firm cultures to retain and advance women lawyers.  The raffle was a crowd pleaser and included a designer necklace from I. Gorman Jeweler (also a sponsor), a sequined top from Julia Farr Collections, and chocolates from Puja Satiani.

Check out Facebook at Best Friends at the Bar to see some pictures from the evening.

Buy the book, read the book and recommend it to your friends.  The reviewers say it is a “must read” for women lawyers and law firms leaders, and I believe them!
